In March I visited the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Despite its size, perhaps you've never heard of this heavenly place? You can definitely read more objectively about it on Wikipedia , but I'll give you a glance from my very subjective experience (and tw...

Behind the Scenes
Do you want to know how batik is made? Follow along! Someone with a vision stencils a design that is then made into a stamp using copper and metal. We saw a room with shelves to the ceiling full of such patterns, each one particular to a region or village. ...

Java on Java

The Sounds of Bamboo
It seems I haven't had much time for the ukulele lately so I decided to take up a more local instrument, the angklung . It's a Sundanese instrument from West Java made from bamboo and it sounds delightful when played well. During a trip to Bandung, I had th...
